Walk & Talk utilizes walking in nature as part of the growth and healing process. Moving beyond an office or technology platforms brings different considerations to the counseling process.

Counseling through the use of technology provides flexibility, reduces barriers to receiving services, and allows sessions to take place in the comfort of your own home.


At Affirm Counseling, I embrace Person-Centered, ecological, and critical approaches.

You're encouraged to explore your experiences at your own pace and I'll be a compassionate companion, reflecting what I hear to provide perspective and insight. Through an ecological lens, we'll explore how your family, relationships, and environment inform your challenges. And by strengthening your ability to critically analyze societal influences, you'll feel empowered to let go of those things which don't serve you and retain those which make you resilient.

I believe you'll find these approaches to complement each other by seamlessly valuing your moment-to-moment needs, affirming your lived experience, and recognizing the impact of external factors.

At Affirm Counseling, my goal is to join with you in healing, renewal, and growth. My hope is for you to gain the awareness and strength you need to move beyond counseling.
